I first stumbled upon this band out of nowhere. I was on my way to view another band and Half Moon Run was opening for them. As the members of the band finally made their way on the stage to play. I thought to myself “here we go, another stereotypical punk band” (only because they had the look). As they started to play I was pleased. They weren’t even a punk band at all, they are an indie band based out of Montreal, Canada. Their Canadian twist on indie music sounded like candy to my ears. Once they were done playing I couldn’t help but think I want more and when I got home more is what I got. When I downloaded the album Dark Eyes, I spent the remainder of the evening having my own pleasant jam session. Here is my review on Dark Eyes by Half Moon Run
Lyrics: 4/5 The lyrics are phenomenal and thought provoking. You can tell they put a lot of thought and emotion into their lyrics. This is not dumb writing like you will find in modern pop music such as Bruno Mars or Brittany Spears. The lyrics draw you in and get you interested right from the start with phrases such as “How come all my vices always breathe relief when a sip of gin saves an hour of speech” just put you in awe as such writing Is hard to come by.
Instrumental Work: 5/5 With low drum patterns and various synths and guitar work, Half Moon Run provides the perfect grooves and melodies to go with the singing. It’s very different and experimental, but it works in a sort of haunting and lasting way. I remember just listening to the song entitled “nerve” and spaced out (in a good way) because of the haunting melody in the song.
Lasting appeal: 3/5 You have to keep in mind that this is their DEBUT album. There is still yet more to come.Read more ›
The album is a solid collection of songs. Overall I think it is an excellent buy and listen for those looking for good music accompanying great lyrics.
